CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – A Manly man is facing multiple charges after police said he seriously injured a woman after committing burglary.
Ezekial Hodak, 20, is facing charges for first-degree attempted burglary, domestic abuse assault, third-degree harassment and obstruction of emergency communication in relation to an incident early Tuesday morning in the 800 block of W. 12th Ave. N.
Authorities said Hodak illegally entered the residence Oct. 23 before sitting on top of the victim’s chest and arms and strangled her.
On Oct. 16, authorities said Hodak was warned to have no further contact with the victim and not to be on her property.
Police also said Hodak took the victim’s cell phone and refused to give it back when she wanted to call police in the early-morning hours of Oct. 23.
